Basic Grey Sketch Challenge

I got some time to play along with the Basic Grey Challenge this week! seems like it's been forever since I got to play along with a challenge. Today I took some time away from my school books and had some "me" time! I have another surprise coming up tomorrow too! Make sure you come back to see what I have up my sleeve!

This week's Basic Grey Challenge is a sketch challenge! Sketches are my favorite! I used the new Marrakech papers....I wasn't going to buy this paper pack until I saw people using it, and then I knew I had to have it! I am totally in love with these papers...and they work perfect for boy cards!!! I used Jet from InStyle Stamps and colored him with my Copics. Since this is a boy card I didn't "deck" it up too much....I used my EK Success border punch, and added a few orange baubles from my stash. Can you believe I made a card and didn't add any ribbon? I am still in total shock that I didn't add ribbon! LOL!
Here's a close up of handsome Jet!
The inside of the card is quite simple. I followed through with my EK Success border from the front. On the left hand side I used the negative parts of the cut out and decorated this cute circle.
I hope everyone is having a Happy Hump Day!
I am busy taking a Business Stats Exam today! ICK! Wish me luck!
Thanks for stopping by!

What a great card. I too love those papers although I don't have any yet. Great cigar box too and good job on the watermark. I just got c3 and I'm clueless. I think I'm going to try Jessica Sprague.
